The Munsens Announce West Coast Tour and New LP Due this Fall

Double-tap of sweet news from Denver trio The Munsens. Having just hit the Electric Funeral fest in their hometown last week, they’re announcing both a West Coast tour for July and the Fall 2017 release of their yet-untitled debut album. Expect more on that as we get closer to the release, as the band’s second EP, Abbey Rose (review here), was so readily diggable and I’m looking forward to hearing how they balance the rawness of that with the extra breadth that a full-length context will undoubtedly provide. Slow punk plus doom trip-outs? Sounds like a win either way, quite frankly.

They’re playing with some killer bands on the tour as well — Oryx, Disenchanter, Grey Gallows, Astral Cult, etc. — so all the better for their going. The PR wire brings dates and more:
